Riders What Do You Think? New Helmet Law Signed By Gov. Synder

So today it happened. Gov Synder signed a bill that would allow motorcycle operators 21 or older to ride without a helmet. The Riders will need at least $20,000 in insurance to ride in the state sans helmet. Groups who supported the bill are overjoyed. They felt Michigan lost millions of dollars to other states where people can ride with no helmet. People who opposed the bill feel more money will be needed for insurance and injuries.

Craig Russell, Grand Rapids’ Most Accurate…

...Movie Reviewer! Ha! It's nice when I get on my little sap box, declare something terrible, and then get it back up by people who really do it. What am I talking about? Last Fall, I saw an ad for the latest Adam Sandler movie called "Jack and Jill". It's like it was only yesterday when I said...(cue the squiggly dream sequence...like on Wayne's World)

Coffee And Donuts And Pi.

Today is National Pi Day. (Remember High School?) 3.14 is Pi. Today is 3.14.12. Clever. To celebrate, I'm going to share the best Fruit pie I have ever eaten. It's tasty and easy AND it has Krispy Kreme glaze on it it. It's the new Krispy Kreme Apple Pies. You can't but them AT a Krispy Kreme store, but you CAN get them at retail locations that sell KK Donuts. (In GR, that's Speedway gas stations and some Family Fare stores)
